|Thread: Castor oil in 4 stroke engines|
Not model related but. Does Castrol oil no longer contain castor oil?
|Thread: Big Trouble in Model Britain|
Hornby must have liked the program, I had e-mails from them for each episode.
|Thread: Cheaper Teslas.....|
They have had a rude awakening in the USA in the recent very low temperatures. Pure electric cars were giving only half the claimed range and using seat/window heating reduced the range to one third of claimed figures. The ultimate recommendation from official sources was to keep the car in a heated garage. !!!!!!!!

Using the name Tesla was a disaster in the making. Tesla himself went bankrupt through business ineptitude.
|Thread: Winters Here Who's Been Flying ?|
It's been a great day at the field today, I can take this global warming.
Today Monday I cut down a dead tree and logged part of it ready for the coming cold spell.
Erfolg, you and your Fracking protesters.
I think they are being stirred up by Russian intelligence over the internet. Other countries in Europe are keenly watching for the drilling results.The Russians don't want Europe producing their own gas when their is so much in Russia to be used.
In Met terms, it's called a False Spring. And there were butterflies about today, that's rare.
|Thread: Canopy/Hatch magnets|
The boxes that contain Hobby King Graphene battery packs have excellent magnets holding the lid down.
|Thread: YAD (Yet Another Drone) and its idiot|
I saw somewhere that the Gatwick drone was thought to have been operated by a disgruntled airport worker who knew where to hide.
|Thread: Smiley Problem|
Teletex has stopped working on my telly. .
|Thread: HS 2|
It will be making a right mess near to where I live, Crewe Station. What with tunnels, loops, separate station, crossing two M6 connecting motorways, splitting large farms into two with no connections, etc
It will never happen, estimated price is galloping away.
|Thread: Mini/micro lathe|
I have wanted a lathe all of my life, since I did a bit at school. Never got one so I suppose at the age of nearly eighty it could be too late now.
|Thread: Field mower question|
Small mower contractors can often be a viable option, often offering very attractive prices.
The reason being, when the mowing contractor goes to the bank for a loan for new machinery a man with twenty or more small clients who are likely to pay up on demand, would seem much better than someone with a couple of big clients who are less likely to pay up quickly.
|Thread: UK supplier of balsa in METRIC thicknesses?|
It would seem to me, that in the mini world we work in, it should be Metric Thiness not Metric Thickness.

|Thread: Favourite Non Scale Sport Bipe?|
|Thread: Which was the best decade for the hobby?|
Trouble is, at my great age I find it difficult to remember what happened last week never mind what was the best era for RC.
|Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.|
My E flite Hurricane soon lost it's radio pole
|Thread: Horizon hobby E-flite Hawker Hurricane P25e|
They started at £250, which I paid, then were quickly reduced to £150 this annoyed me greatly. The reason being that they were a total dead dogs sales wise. Nobody has heard of the Hurricane in the USA, we only produced Spitfires..
The model has a design fault in that the wheels are too far back, which can result in frequent nose overs on landing if you are not careful.
On the plus side they are excellent flyers and really look the part in the air and on 3300 batteries they give a good long flight.
I still have mine.
